SHARING OUR GIFTS ... Welcome to Online Pledging & Online Giving!

 

A pledge is your commitment to make a financial gift that supports the mission of St. John. Pledging is a response to God's call and abundance in our own lives - it's a statement of thanksgiving! Completing your pledge online offers you the opportunity to make your commitment whenever you are ready.

Click on the link below to complete your pledge for 2017.

 

Online giving is a convenient way to make your donations to St. John.  You can set them up as a one-time donation or you can have your donations automatically recur. Online giving allows you 24-hour access to make your contributions - from anywhere.  

 

As "special" funds come available for contributions, they are added to list of funds to choose from 

(example ~ contributions toward Day Camp or Mission Trip Fund typically show up only during the spring and summer months).

Trust Fund

The TRUST FUND at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church was established in 1984 with a generous bequest from longtime member Louise Anderson.  The Trust Fund is designed to preserve the principal (your gifts), with a portion of the earnings used to fulfill our mission (giving aid to those in need).  Since 1985, under the guidance of the Trust Fund Committee, the Trust Fund has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the needs of the church, our local community, and missions throughout the United States and the world.

Ways to Give

 

As more technology becomes available, things become easier. Even things we thought were simple before! Something as simple as putting cash or a check in an envelope for our offering has now taken on many forms.  There is Simply Giving, Online Giving, Text-to-Give, an App, or the old-fashioned way of utilizing your offering envelopes. Sound confusing?  Hopefully this explanation will educate you about the myriad “Ways to Give”, and hopefully making the process more convenient for you!

 

 

OFFERING ENVELOPES

The use of offering envelopes is probably the most "traditional", and for some the most comfortable.  Offering envelopes come in a booklet, with envelopes for each week that can be torn out of the book and utilized. You can be drop off your envelope at the church office, put in the offering plate, or it can be mailed.

 How to start:  If you would like a booklet of offering envelopes, contact the church office.

 

ELECTRONIC GIVING

     SIMPLE GIVING

Simple Giving is basically the same as online giving, EXCEPT with Simple Giving, the St. John Financial Office will set it up for you!  This gives you the convenience of automatic payments from your bank account without having to go through the process of setting it up.  Changes can be made as often as you like.

How to start: Complete a Simple Giving form authorizing St. John to set up the automatic payment for you (making the process “Simple”). You can fill-in the form online OR print a copy, fill out and return it to the church office.

 

                                       Print form & return to St. John                      Complete form online

 

     ONLINE GIVING

With online giving, you manage your own automatic or one-time donations through our website.

How to start: Click on the GIVE ONLINE button above. You will be directed to a secure page to set up your own account.  For future reference, click on the GIVE button at the top of the Homepage to return to the Giving Online section.

 

MOBILE GIVING 

     "MYCHURCH WEBSITE GIVING" APP

This is an app that you can use on your electronic devices (phone, ipad, etc). Within this app, you can set up your account the same as Online Giving on the computer, but now its mobile! Additionally, you have the ability to give to other churches in the vicinity that also use this technology (example: you are visiting another church that also uses this app. You can choose that church from the drop-down list and give a contribution to them through your account). 

How to start: Go the to App Store and download MYCHURCH WEBSITE GIVING.  It will prompt you to enter the church which will receive your contribution, then to set up your account. This method mirrors the Online Giving page through our website.

 

      TEXT-TO-GIVE

Text-to-Give allows a person to text their contribution on their cell phone! Convenient anytime, anywhere.

How to start: Add the phone number 701-203-9660 to yourcontact list. This is the number you will text when making your contribution. The first time you try this, it will ask you questions to set up your account.
